Options Schedule Tab
Use the Schedule tab to enable or disable automated processes. Generally, you can use the default options.
To open the Schedule tab:
- In CAM Administrator, select Tools > Options.
- Select the Schedule tab.
Select or clear the following options to enable or disable various types of discovery. Leave these options selected to run the task as scheduled. Go to the Task Scheduler to change the times and days of the week on which these scheduled tasks are run.
- Discover directory services: This discovery process automatically runs at 1:00 AM every Sunday.
- Discover Linux/Unix/Mac OS: Once you configure Linux/Unix/Mac OS discovery, this discovery process automatically runs at 2:30 AM every Sunday.
- Discover network devices: Once you configure network device discovery, this process automatically runs at 3:00 AM every Sunday.
- Discover virtual environment: Once you configure virtual environment discovery, this process automatically runs at 1:30 AM every Sunday.
- Discover Oracle databases: Once you configure Oracle Database discovery, this discovery process automatically runs at 4:00 AM every Sunday.
The remaining options on the Schedule tab control other automatic processes in CAM. We recommend that you leave the default values for these options.
- Discard usage data older than <n> days: When this option is selected (the default), usage data older than the number of days specified is removed from the CAM database as scheduled.
- Discard CAM history data older than <n> days: When this option is selected (the default), historical data older than the number of days specified is removed from the CAM database as scheduled.
- Automatically configure Windows applications every <n> days: By default, the automatic configuration process is scheduled to run once a week.
- Evaluate unrecognized files every <n> days: By default, files not recognized as application files are reevaluated every day; leave this option selected to run this task as scheduled.
- Delete machine if last heartbeat older than <n> days: Any machines that have not contacted their access points for a specified number of days will be deleted. This option is cleared (turned off) by default. You can select it and specify a number of days here.
Using the Windows Task Scheduler
You can also manage how often these processes are run through the Task Scheduler, a System Tools accessory that ships with Windows.
To open the Task Scheduler:
- In Windows, select the Control Panel.
Administrative Tools >
This may be called Task Scheduler, depending on your version of Windows.
